We'd like to say something before we go any further: we love you, Reddit. No other corner of the internet is quite as willing to humiliate itself, each other and complete strangers for the greater good. While Reddit has had some very real mainstream victories in the recent past (like President Obama's AMA), we're here to focus on our favorite, most self-effacing subbreddit out there: Shitty Food Porn.

The Shitty Food Porn subreddit catalogues some of the best and worst of human cooking behavior. You get to see the abject failures, the simple mistakes, the chronic inability of frozen food to look like the image on its package and our favorite phenomenon -- the purposeful documentation of the moment when you, too drunk, too hungry or too out-of-f***s-to-give, microwave something hideous that definitely tastes good. We're talking about tortillas with cheese and jarred tomato sauce, baked mozzarella sticks, mac and cheese made with ramen noodles. Your mind's telling you no, but your stomach -- your stomach's telling you yes.

It's in this spirit of adoration, camaraderie and a commitment to doing better that we give you our 20 favorite Shitty Food Porn posts of all time:

Sometimes you just have to make sure that someone else saw what you saw.

13. "A coworkers lunch. Possibly the saddest meal I've ever seen. :(" - correct_my_grammar

Don't ever let anyone tell you that empathy doesn't exist on the internet.
